Can I claim compensation?
The main criteria for making a claim are that the injury must have occurred:
- in the last three years, and;
- someone else was to blame, and;
- that person owed you a duty of care.
Are there any exceptions?
Yes. In reality, a number of factors can impact whether a successful no win, no fee claim will be possible, such as the type of accident or whether the defendant is uninsured.
It costs nothing to find out if you are entitled to compensation. Speak to a personal injury solicitor now on 0800 376 1001. If you prefer, you can check your claim online with our Personal Injury Claim Checker:
The amount of money you could claim for your injury will depend on:
- the extent of your injury, and
- any financial losses or costs you have incurred.
At the start of your claim, your solicitor will consider the many ways your injury has affected your life. Your solicitor will take all of these effects into account to calculate the correct compensation award for you.
This calculation will factor in 'general damages' and 'special damages'.
General damages are awarded for pain, suffering and loss of amenity (PSLA).
Awards for general damages are set by the Judicial College and published in their guidelines for personal injury awards.
Special damages are for financial losses and expenses you have incurred as a result of the accident.
What can I claim for after an injury? (see list)
Examples of special damages (losses you can claim for) include:
- Lost earnings (including future earnings)
- Medical treatment costs
- Travel costs
- Costs of care
- Costs of adapting your home or car
Calculating how much compensation you can claim for an injury can be complicated.
Our injury compensation calculator tells you if you may have a claim, how much compensation you could claim, and what you can claim for.

Other types of claim
Public place injuries
Health and Saftey Executive (HSE) figures demonstrate that employee slips, trips and falls are, by a considerable degree, the most prevalent accident in the workplace. Slips and trips are frequently related to accidents attributed to other reasons like being hit by hand tools in use or a drowning accident. Public liability negligence claims injuries like fractured vertebrae suffered on tripping on a street are also quite common with recent slips and trips having happened in the area.
Clinical negligence (medical negligence) is the term used when a patient suffers injury or illness due to a consultant or other health professional's carelessness. If you have been the victim of medical negligence, Quittance's panel of expert clinical negligence solicitors can help you claim compensation from the NHS trust or private clinic.
Alternatively, you can raise a formal complaint if you only want closure instead of financial compensation. For example, to make a formal complaint against NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, you can contact West Glasgow Hospital, Dalnair Street, Glasgow.

What are the road accident statistics in Renton
Our network of certified no win, no fee injury lawyers have years of experience in fighting for optimum compensation for people injured in a car or motorcycle accident in Renton.
Road traffic accidents involving cars, motorcycles and other vehicles in Renton are common.

In 2014 total accidents had decreased to 135.
Can I claim for someone else?
Yes. In certain circumstances, it is possible to claim compensation on behalf of another person in the capacity of a 'litigation friend'.
If an injured person is either too young or vulnerable, too injured or otherwise unable to claim on their own behalf, their litigation friend can handle the claim process on behalf of the injured person.
The litigation friend will be responsible for communicating with the solicitors, and for making decisions in respect of the claim.
Can I claim if I was partly responsible for an accident?
You may still be able to claim compensation even if you contributed to your accident or to your injuries.
However, if you were partly to blame (known as contributory negligence), your compensation may be reduced and it may be more difficult to prove liability.
How long will my claim take?
The length of time needed to secure compensation can vary considerably.
For example, straightforward car accident claims can settle in a matter of weeks, whereas complex medical negligence cases can take years.
Injury claims can also take longer if it is not clear who is responsible for your injury, or if liability is denied by the defendant.

Will I have to go to court?
Highly unlikely. The vast majority of claims that are settled by the solicitor panel are settled out of court.
Only a very small percentage (approx. 5%) of personal injury claims go to court. Generally, only very complex cases, or those where liability cannot be resolved, end up in court.
Cases that do ultimately go to court are held in front of a judge, not a jury.
Will I have to go to a solicitor's office?
No. You will not need visit a solicitor's office. As with most professional services, it is no longer necessary to meet face to face with your solicitor. Personal injury claims are dealt with via email, post and telephone.
Should you need to have a medical, this will be arranged at a medical centre near you or at your GP's surgery.
Can I get an early compensation payment?
If you suffer financial hardship as a result of an injury, you may be able to claim an interim compensation payment.
An interim payment is a partial settlement of your claim which is paid before your claim is concluded. The amount you receive in interim payments would then be deducted from your final compensation settlement or award.
